    Turkey – Çeşme to Esendere

    On Greek island Chios, I spent just some hours and used the waiting time for the ferry to fill up my pockets with Euros, before leaving the EU. Due to the embargo, Iran doesn´t accept foreign bank cards, so I have to bring enough money for currency exchange. The ferry from Chios to Cesme is tiny, only two cars and some passengers fit.

In spite of hosting 20000 students the city isn´t a place to linger long, so I wanted to pass straight through to the East, to catch another ferry from the port of Athens (Piräus) to the Aegean Islands. But it came differently. My…

    The Rough Plan

    Follow me on my journey from Salzburg, Austria to somewhere in the Far East. I took a year off to travel solo in a Mercedes Sprinter, which I converted the last several months to an off-grid camper van. It is fully equipped now with water, gas, heating, solar system, full kitchen, shower and a bed. My route will start in Salzburg, over the Alps to…

    Embassy Report Pakistan (Vienna)

    Pakistan Visa can be only made in your home country. This is why the 3-month validity is problematic for long-term travelers. I applied successfully for a single entry 6-month validity visa, which costs 168€ plus 6€ postal fees (“Einschreiben”) to send my passport home, instead of driving another time to the embassy. A return flight and hotel booking are required. As I will arrive with…
